CQ Roll Call and Just Security hosted a wide-ranging discussion of the role of national security in the 2014 midterm elections—and in shaping the agenda of the 114th Congress thereafter. The event included a roundtable conversation focusing on the key debates (and underappreciated issues) heading into the elections, along with the extent to which national security issues will—and should—shape the agenda of the Congress that the American people return to Washington in January 2015.
